CARE worked in Cambodia between 1973 and 1975, distributing food, providing medical assistance and improving education. From 1975 onwards CARE worked to support the millions of Cambodian refugees who fled the Khmer Rouge and were living in camps along the Thai-Cambodian border.
In 1990, we returned to Cambodia, working with the United Nations to help 370,000 Cambodian refugees return to their homes. Over the years, CARE has shifted its focus in Cambodia from short-term, vital relief operations, to long-term projects in health, education and rural development.
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
Girls Lead the Way
In Cambodia's remote northeast province of Ratanakiri, CARE has been opening up educational opportunities over the last decade for children in ethnic minority communities. In this region, many girls were dropping out of school due to high domestic workloads.
